Analyzing the Pain

I’m trying to figure out why the pain after my liver biopsy last Thursday was so intense. From everything I’ve read, a liver biopsy should not have hurt as bad as it did.

All I could come up with, is that the surgery must have triggered some kind of pre-existing source of pain in my abdomen, and just magnified it.

(Since I have a lot of abdomen pain in general, maybe this was just one too many in that area, and the pain nerves just went bezerk?)

I have never felt pain that severe before in my life…ever. I’ve had severe chest pain with an elevated tropinin level, I’ve given birth, and I’ve had gallbladder/appendix/tonsils removed, and NOTHING compared to the pain I felt after this biopsy.

I still have some pain today, but it’s not as bad. Bad enough that I have to be careful, but I can walk around and have a normal conversation for a few moments.

May 22, 2014-May 24, 2014 was the worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life. I literally thought I was going to die.

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
